Wine Review: This garnet colored Tempranillo opens with a raspberry bouquet with a hint of sour cherries. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, approachable, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a slightly tart raspberry with notes of black cherry, minerals, and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little bit. This wine would pair nicely with grilled barbecue chicken. Enjoy - Ken
